NUHS MT Students Show Outstanding Performance on Boards

Here in Illinois, as in most other states, every massage therapist needs to take standardized board examinations for licensure. According to an official report from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, massage therapy students from National University of Health Sciences performed exceptionally well on the most recent exams.

In fact, NUHS' school pass rate during the last national board exam was 92.86 percent! Compare that to the Illinois pass rate average of 70.59 and the national pass rate average of 74.75 for the same time period.

"A high pass rate such as this, shows that our students are well prepared, and comfortable in the knowledge and skills they will need as professional massage therapists," says Dr. Randy Swenson, Dean of the College of Allied Health Sciences at National University.

For every single test period since 2009, on every single topic tested, National University MT grads outperformed state and national averages. Take a look at the full results.

Such pass rates are a good barometer for choosing a massage school. National University's massage therapy certification and degree programs prepare students for success on both board exams and for a full range of rewarding career options in massage therapy.
